Ah, that’s a pity. If someone provides a download link for the update from the previous step (i.e. 5 February 2020 patches, so I would need A.0111 –> A.0118 ), I’ll finally be able to try the manual installation procedure.
There are already several posts regarding this in the forum, there is no /sbin/update_engine_sideload in the boot image. I think Fairphone needs to enable something in the build process for this to work.
I know the notification light has religious followings both for and against, but to all those who think notification lights belong dead: thank you for taking a few seconds to disable it so the rest of us who do want it can enjoy it.
I don’t care about notifications but I bought an FP because it is supposed to last me several years but I am still on the update from December. I am using Dutch Vodafone. What do you recommend? Should I contact Vodafone or Fairphone about this issue? It’s really starting to grind my gears! I live alone and don’t have access to anyone’s SIM from another provider right now, but have any Dutchies been successful updating with another SIM and if so, how did you do it?
Thanks, I really hope it is true. In the meantime I am still interested in hearing from people who successfully updated using another SIM with specific details on how they did it (which provider, which slot, etc.)
I’ve just turned on an FP3 here without a SIM card, and if I go to System > System update, it shows the available update. I know you’ve tried that before but it really ought to work - but if it doesn’t, I think contacting Vodafone may be the way to go.
I believe, Vodafone support may not able to help, as they might have too little knowledge about the phone, yet. Maybe more to come in the future, or maybe in the Netherlands, they have more knowledge - who knows.
But I’m proud that the Fairphone community is very strong and tries to help each other a lot, which may be far more advantage than any official support. Of course, sometimes an official statement is necessary, I understand completely.
And why not asking also. But if they don’t know, please don’t hesitate to ask here @Linn
I hope I can fulfil this trust. While I have a slightly deeper look to the inside, I’m still depending on other people statements who on their part depending on other people efforts. It still looks promising and I’d like to ask for ~2 weeks of patience.
